Why do pillows turn yellow?

Lifehacker’s gurus state that the most common reason pillows turn yellow is sweat.

Whether we admit it or not, we all sweat, and when that moisture seeps through a pillowcase onto the pillow below, it can cause stains.

This problem becomes more common the more someone sweats, and can become a bigger problem on those awkward summer nights when you just can’t cool off.

But sweat isn’t the only moisture to watch out for, wet or greasy hair can also lead to yellowing.

Lifehacker’s experts state: “In addition to sweat, your hair can also be to blame: especially if it’s particularly greasy or you often go to bed with wet or damp hair.

“Some types of makeup and skincare products can also be behind the yellow stains. It could also be drool. Putting a waterproof pillow protector in front of your pillowcase can help prevent much of the discoloration.”

How to remove yellow spots

Experts claim that you should act quickly to get stains off your pillows because the longer they sit there, the harder it becomes to remove them when you try to clean them.

They also state that regardless of stains, you should wash your pillows at least twice a year, which should help keep the stains at bay for at least a while.

But if you want to remove stains from your pillows in an emergency, there’s a little-known hack you can use to quickly get rid of yellowing—using a mixture of baking soda and water.

Lifehacker gurus said, “You can start by spot-treating the stains with either a store-bought stain remover spray or cream, or with a paste made from a baking soda and water mixture.”

You can also keep stains at bay longer with the help of a waterproof pillow protector, preventing sweat and drool from getting onto your pillow in the first place.

Experts added, “Putting a waterproof pillow protector in front of your pillowcase can help prevent much of the discoloration.”
